Congratulations! It was nice to see it fly. I pulled mine down from the shelf over the weekend and cleaned it up. I may have to go through it and make it flyable again.

Great video! The Storch is such a cool airplane. The model will do pretty much the same stuff the full scale was doing. Rudder turns are not a problem. Rudder will cause a bank in the direction...

I have a Bryant Storch that I have flown many times. It is a good flying airplane. Actually very good but it does need to be flown a little differently than your normal high wing, Cub, trainer or...

Neat idea. My guess is that the gyroscopic effects of the compressor, shaft, and turbine wheel mounted high and to the rear of the boat are affecting stability. You might try mounting the turbine...

RE: Does your scale model fly realistically ?

Scale RC models can and do exhibit characteristics of their full scale counterpart. I have had the privilege of flying both types of the same aircraft and they do have very similar characteristics....

I don't post a lot but do feel the need to put my 2 cents in here. Like some others that posted I also fly full scale and models. I love both and it would be hard to pick one if I had to give one...

RE: Magnetic pickup ring

Cutting or grinding magnets is tricky at best. They are very brittle and any heat destroys the magnetic properties.

Yes a bar magnet should work just fine but a disk or cyndricular of the...

RE: Magnetic pickup ring

Dennis is correct. When you break/cut a magnet it creates a new pair of poles. Your cracked ring will give higher readings than the actual rpm of the engine. The ringed magnets were prone to...

RE: Why so much down thrust on pod fuselages

Let me clarify a little. I should have stated that it depends on the total airframe, but wing airfoil is a major factor. Things such as incidence of wing vs. horizontal stab come into play. ...

RE: Why so much down thrust on pod fuselages

Bald Eagle hit the nail on the head. Mostly wing design. Same reason most trainer type (flat bottomed) aircraft benefit from down thrust. The wing doesn't know if it is being pushed through the...

RE: Electric Retracts - Modifying existing Air/Servo-operated Retracts

Larry, is correct on the threads. Also called ACME i think. 4/40 threads are fine pitch and may lead to wear issues especially if brass is used. You may also check for binding when the threads get...

RE: Why no turbine made in USA

JDE makes a 14 lb, 54mm class engine called the Hawk 14. It is 100% made in California. Oops, the ECU is made in another state. But still all American. It features some neat innovations...
